Prognostic Factors in CCHF - An Indian Origin Study.

Conclusion: Marked difference noted between two groups in Aptt prolongation, INR elevation, ALT level, S.Fibrinogen, CCHF IgM positivity, major bleeding symptoms and CNS involvement while no such major difference seen in other parameters like platelet count, total WBC count and other clinical parameters. Further study with large sample size from indian patients needed to confirm above findings. PMID: 31801328 [PubMed - in process]

We report that IMF clock angle at low latitude does not have influence on Pc4 occurrence. Based on the characteristics of these events, detected in latitudinally distributed stations from low and mid-latitudes from northern and southern hemisphere, we infer that modes were compressional, which could be driven by K-H instability or solar wind dynamic pressure, as compressional modes can propagate to low latitude with little attenuation.

Authors: Monsalve Alonso S, Miranda García P, Santander Vaquero C Abstract Cap-polyposis is a rare benign condition characterized by inflammatory colorectal polyps covered by a "cap" of fibrinopurulent exudate. Mucous diarrhea and rectal bleeding are frequent symtoms. It can be difficult to diagnose and it is necessary to make a differential diagnosis from other entities. Its pathogenesis is unknown and it has a variable clinical course. The optimal treatment has not been established. PMID: 31960689 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We report the case of a 60-year-old male with a giant colorectal laterally spreading tumor at the recto-sigmoid junction. A single tunnel-assisted endoscopic submucosal dissection was performed that constructed a submucosal tunnel along the longitude axis of the tumor. An en bloc resection was achieved with no perforation or post-operative bleeding and a comparatively low procedure time. PMID: 31960681 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Gheorghiu ML, Badiu C Abstract Selenium (Se), an important oligoelement, is a component of the antioxidant system. Over the last decade, it has been ever more frequently discussed in the context of thyroid disorders. Graves' disease and Hashimoto's thyroiditis, differentiated thyroid cancer, and even endemic goiter may have common triggers that are activated by excess reactive oxygen species (ROS), which are involved in various stages of the pathogenesis of thyroid disorders. Most oxidative events occur in mitochondria, organelles that contain enzymes with Se as a cofactor. Mitochondria are responsible for...

We present a less frequently used approach to achieve total obliteration of an AVM with intranidal fistulas using cyanoacrylate glue and a single micro catheter with pharmacologically induced circulatory arrest. The use of adenosine is relatively inexpensive and adds economic advantage to the procedure. In carefully planned and selected cases using a single micro catheter glue can be deposited with minimal venous rundown to completely obliterate the AVM without the need for coils and other devices.

Authors: Scialfa E, Rivero M, Moreno S, Ortiz M, Bongiorno F Abstract Leptospirosis is considered an endemic disease in Buenos Aires province, Argentina, with human cases reported annually from rural and urban areas. The aim of the study was to describe the variables that influence the delay in the serological confirmation of leptospirosis in human cases (period 2006-2014) from Buenos Aires province. Sixty-four percent (64%) of cases could be confirmed by microscopic agglutination test (MAT) with the first sample. The time of confirmation of the human leptospirosis cases was on average 21 days from the onset of the...

Abstract American Indians and Alaska Natives (AIANs) have been documented as a population with high rates of cancer mortality in comparison to other racial and ethnic groups in the United States. During a time when other populations in the United States are experiencing improvements in cancer outcomes, cancer disparities in AIANs persist. The disparities in cancer outcomes in this diverse population can be attributed to a complex constellation of factors, which include access-to-care, economic, medical, and individual barriers, and mistrust and disenfranchisement.

Conclusion: Due to general lack of awareness towards toxoplasmosis observed among both health workers and pregnant women in Temeke Municipality, we recommend health policy on maternal and child healthcare to address prenatal screening that is aimed at providing early diagnosis for any possible congenital toxoplasmosis as well as diseases that are currently screened in Tanzania such as HIV, syphilis and malaria. Integrating a One Health approach in educating medical professionals and the vulnerable population of pregnant women on the importance of congenital zoonoses will promote awareness and preventive practices towards t...

Background: Variceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) is common in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). However, poor access to endoscopy services precludes the diagnosis of varices.Objectives: We determined the diagnostic accuracy of routine clinical findings for detection of esophageal varices among patients with UGIB in rural SSA where schistosomiasis is endemic.Methods: We studied patients with a history of UGIB. The index tests included routine clinical findings and the reference test was diagnostic endoscopy. Multivariable regression with post-estimation provided measures of association and diagnostic accuracy.Results: We...
